Camas High graduate Brian Humphreys made a big rally, but fell just short, placing second at the Washington Men’s Amateur championship Thursday at Chambers Bay Golf Course near Tacoma.

Humphreys, a senior at Boise State, lost by one shot to Sean Kato of Redmond.

Humphreys shot a 3-under-par 69 for a second consecutive day to finish the three-day tournament at 8-under.

Humphreys started the day five shots behind Kato, but quickly drew within three shots when Kato double-bogeyed the first hole.

He finally caught Kato with birdie on No. 13 as both golfers sat at 8-under. A bogey on No. 14 dropped Humphreys one back, but he tied it up again after Kato bogeyed No. 15.

Both golfers parred No. 16 before Kato birdied No. 17 to take a one-shot lead. Both golfers birdied the final hole to give Kato the win with a 9-under-par total of 207.
